Sometimes even the closest doggie families snap at each other. They have bad days lust like we do. People snap at those they love sometimes and so do dogs and cats. Shasta stepped on her foot, she's just having a bad day, she wasn't feeling well that day, she just wanted to be left alone, she's protecting food or a treat, the possibilities are endless. We've all experienced it and it's usually nothing to worry about. If the aggressive behavior continues and escalates, then you need to worry.
